Lambent #writephoto

When I walk in the dark, feeling things and measuring footsteps, I know how light defines the parameters of existence. The world is whatever light helps me to see. Whatever I can’t see does not exist.

Glowing, gleaming, flickering, blinding, soothing, illuminating – it is the context for all that I see and understand.

“Do you know me?”

I hear a deep, hushed voice from somewhere and a hand creeping up on my skin.

I scream, and the lights come on.

My husband is standing there laughing,

“Why are the lights switched off?”

“You just spoilt the essay I was writing.”
